At one time or another, we all wonder who it is that we might be, where it was that we came from, why am I here? It is only natural in the progression of things to wonder these things.
But what if you slipped in the shower or fell down some stairs, and when you came awake, you did not know who you were? How would you handle that? Your entire memory is wiped clean by a simple pit fall or stumble. So one day, you are the CEO of a major corporation and you slip in your office bathroom in Phoenix Arizona and wake up in a hospital. And you awaken only to discover … You cannot remember who you are … Without a clue of who, what, where, when and why?
So to make matters even worse, when the doctor looks at you and says “What is your name?” you have no working knowledge of the word name and you do not know its meaning. When introduced to your wife of some 30 years, you do not know what the word “wife” means.
What would you do if you found yourself in this predicament, with untreatable form of memory loss. Again, “What would you do, when you look around the room and survey your world, and nothing, absolutely nothing, registers with you, then what?
I suppose there is no greater agony in life than bearing an untold story inside of you.
Kind of scary eh.
